Quebec has recorded its first COVID-19 outbreak at a daycare, says the director of public health for the Lanaudière region. The daycare centre — an emergency childcare service for essential workers in Mascouche — was closed on Monday, Dr. Richard Lessard said in a virtual news conference on Wednesday. Mascouche is 50 kilometres northwest of Montreal. Twelve out of 27 children contracted COVID-19, as did four employees, Lessard said. No one was hospitalized.
